200grams of crazy colour

I had a sudden urge to experiment with changing my dyeing technique during the week and produced these massive balls of crazy colours.
The first ball rusty brown ball looks this in the skein:

I'm hoping it'll knit up with some small patches of speckley rusty brown at the start fading to a lovely blend of oranges, pinks, blues & purples then changing to a lovely gradient of rusty browns... fingers crossed.  I'll let you know how it knits up and I'm thinking that it would look nice as a dress for Laney (knit top down).

The second ball is more greeny & blue and looks like this in the skein:

I'm hoping it'll knit up similar to the one above but with a lighter colour palette, once again I'll let you know how it works out. I'm thinking of a shawl/wrap for me, knit side to side until I've run out of yarn BUT I can't seem to find a pattern for what I want, so a search continues.
As I was searching shawls, I found this super cool one! It's not what I was after to make this time but geesh, it's so ace that I just might make it another time!

In the meantime, until I decide if I want to put these crazy balls into my shop, you can still grab some of my favourite colourways from me here.....   If I do like these crazy colour effects I'll go ahead and dye some more but I don't think they'll be in the 200gm lots as I did above as there was way too much work involved in those and that'd sink me.

    I LOVE the browny one. Would look PERFECT in a shawl.
